The Trio try to make Katrina, Warren's ex-girlfriend, their willing sexual slave by magical means. But when she fights back she is accidentally killed, they use magical and demonic forces to make Buffy think that she has killed Katrina.

Between finding out the truth about her resurrection and believing she killed an innocent girl, Buffy's world begins to fall apart.

Goofs: When the camera pans back rapidly as Buffy looks upon the crying girl with confusion, a large stage light is clearly visible on the left hand side of the screen.

  • When Katrina's stunt double starts to tumble down a hillside out in the woods, you can see a leaf-covered tarp that conceals the safety mats dug into the ground to cushion the stunt woman's fall wrinkle up and start sliding down the hill with her.
  • After Buffy and Spike sleep together, when Spike asks, "Are we having a conversation?" and Buffy says, "What? No?" There is a side shot of her. If you look closely at her back (pausing helps), you can just barely see Buffy's skin colored tube top. Trust me, it's there. The time code is 1:22.
  • As Warren is prowling the bar, the tie camera shows a redhead walking past and then a man in a white shirt sitting at the end of the bar in the background. A moment later Warren sees Katrina sitting there.

Trivia: Tara becomes the first of the Scoobies to find out about Spike and Buffy's sexual relationship, because of her role as "confidante" in the Scoobies.
